About us

Books4Spain is an online bookshop specialising in English language books about Spain or books set in Spain.

Books4Spain has been established, by Rod Younger, an Anglo-Spaniard, in response to the explosive growth in online mass market “soulless” book retailers, such as Amazon, and the continuing decline of the traditional independent bookshop with knowledgeable staff and an interesting collection of books.

The site has been designed to re-create the experience, attractions and benefits of a traditional bricks & mortar independent bookshop but with the added convenience afforded by the Internet and technology to offer better choice, an easier way to discover books about Spain and to enable our clients to discover Spain and its rich history and culture through books.

A key feature of Books4Spain are Spanish Themes and Connections which are designed to enable users to easily explore and discover in greater detail books covering important aspects of Spanish culture and history.  

We have a large selection of books about Spain in various categories including, Art & Architecture, History, Fiction, Crime, Thrillers & Mystery, Food & Wine, Travel, Holidays & Leisure, Spanish Civil War, Flamenco, Camino de Santiago, Children's Books, Living in Spain etc.

We have a network of reviewers who are either experts in a particular field, e.g. Andrew J Linn for flamenco and wine, or who are book lovers and lovers of Spain and who write the Books4Spain Reviews for specific books which you can find on our blog: http://books4spain.com/blog/

Customer service is a priority for us and we aim to respond within 24 hours to any emails and to try and resolve any questions or queries as quickly as possible.

We are human and we welcome any feedback or suggestions you may have with regard to the site and our book selection – we are always looking to add quality books about Spain to the site so please do email us your suggestions/recommendations to suggestions@books4spain.com and we will use our best efforts to source the relevant book(s).

As you know, Spain is not just about sun, sea and sangria, it's about the Moors, the Reconquest, El Cid, Hernan Cortes, the Conquistadors, the Golden Age, Don Quijote, the Camino de Santiago, Flamenco, Rioja, Ribera del Duero, paella, seafood, the Alhambra, Real Madrid, Barcelona, Velazquez, Goya, Murillo, Andres Segovia, Joaquin Rodrigo, Carmen, Napoleon, Wellington, the Spanish Armada, Catalyuna (Catalonia), Andalucia, or Andalusia if you prefer, Rafael Nadal, Fernan Adria - the list goes on and on.

In addition, authors such as Ernest Hemingway, George Orwell, Laurie Lee, Gerald Brenan, George Borrow, Richard Ford and Washington Irving have long been fascinated by this amazing country and we hope that Books4Spain enables you to discover, and share in, their experiences and those of many others.

We look forward to being of service to you.

Yours sincerely,

Rod Younger
